    I have been through a few, lived in central Florida for 14 years. But except for hurricane Erin all of them were in 2004. Charley, Frances, and Jeanne. I rode out the storm at my parents house, which was spared completely from any serious affects, but the combination of roof damage from Charley, and rain from Frances and Jeanne, caused enough water to build up in the insulation in my apartment that the ceiling collapsed. Took 6 weeks to get the ceiling fixed too, as contractors were in such high demand.

    I remember Bob. I also remember Bertha. We had a huge cookout with 100+ family and friends. We had a 100' X 50' tarp up as a makeshift tent. Every time the wind blew and the tarp inflated everyone should shout "whoooooaaaaahh" until it came back down. Doesn't sound as funny in print though.

    I'm also a storm watcher. I sat outside in my shed this past fall when Irene came through. Though that may have had more to to with a wife and three kids in the house with no power and a cooler full of beer in the shed.;):rolleyes::D

    Canon 5D (classic) and 50mm 1.8 - one of my favorite lenses.

    Its such an awesome little device - glad I backed it.

    Ugh, I was a huge photo buff in high school. Love spending some time in the dark room. Haven't shot much lately. I have a humble Cannon G10. Can't toss out the coin for a solid dSLR but would love to some day. Love those shots by the way.

    BTW did anyone catch the (re) premiere of Touch on FOX?

    I watched Kiefer Sutherland in 24 and this is a totally different role for him, but I am very drawn in. So far the pilot/premiere was amazing.

    Do what I did in regards to the dSLR thing. Go for an older, well taken care of semi-pro model like the 30D/40D/50D series. The sensors on those are much better than the Rebel series, the construction of the body is much sturdier, and the shutter is rated for more actuations...a lot more. You get a much better camera for half the price of a new Rebel.

    Nooooooooo!! I like it. (DVR'd last night's). I wish they'd have the son replaced though - how he got the part is beyond me. He is freaking terrible!!!!!!!

    BTW...Only asking $250 for my 30D. Have a nice walkaround lens I'd be willing to part with if someone wants a starter kit. 3 batteries and charger, 2 CF cards (2GB), and the neck strap.

    Ran accross a great deal on my 70-200 f/2.8L non-IS that I couldn't pass up. For what I do I can stand not having IS if I have that 2.8, plus I like having that extra DOF. Photography has been a hobby of mine and my wife's ever since we met :) Fun activity to share.

    I'll be frank in that I've never seen it. And, I never will. Simply looking forward to Community coming back :D

    Man, I'm trying to keep my "frivolous" expenditures down! After getting my Prime, I've told myself I can't buy anything big for a while. :(

    I have a T2i, love it, Lens' are all Canon, My favorite lens is what has kept me in the Rebel series when I have upgraded my base. It is the only EF-S lens I have, but I love it and bought it for doing wide angle shots that are not distorted. It is near L quality, Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR. Also have a 28-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS UM I use for a walk around and a 70-300 4-5.6 IS UM. Upgraded to the T2i, a couple of years ago , gotta say it is a great camera, very fast, great in low light, processor is much better than its predecessor. Not the 5D, but an exceptional camera.

    Haha, I understand. I have to scrape up and find things to sell in order to buy things I want. Hence the sell of the 30D, lens, and a few other items around the house we don't use. Trying to scrape up enough for a 60D.

    That 10-22 will be my next lens purchase. LOVE that lens. The 28-135 is what I'm selling with my 30D. Few better lenses for walking around. Very fast and quiet focus and a pretty good zoom range.

    It is an excellent lens particularly for when you need wide and no distortion. I can stand in the door of an average bedroom and shoot the entire room maintaining perspective. Wow, I just looked on amazon and this lens is $300 more than I paid for it several years ago! The price has gone up?

    I put my old body with a kit lens (Rebel XT) on Craigslist and sold it in three days for $375 (with boxes and manuals etc). That is a great price for the 30D, would make a great buy for someone.

    I'm between the Canon and the Sigma. Right now I'm focused on getting resources for that 60D though, haha :)
